Posted by at 12:49 am on April 4, 2011

Warner Bros. Television’s popular series Supernatural makes history this summer as Supernatural: The Anime Series is released in the United States as the first-ever live-action series to be re-imagined in Japanese anime style. The all-new, 22-episode animated series will be distributed July 26, 2011 by Warner Home Video on Blu-ray for $54.97 (SRP) and DVD for $49.98 (SRP), as well as On Demand and for Download.

Supernatural has great popularity in Japan, which inspired Warner Home Video Japan and renowned animation studio Madhouse combined forces to envision Supernatural as an anime series – first released in Japan and now translated for American audiences.

An Anime Mirror of Seasons one and Two

Supernatural revisits the Winchester brothers’ journey down the backroads of America as they search for clues to their father’s disappearance, hunt down the supernatural in all its unearthly forms, and enter into the unexpected mystery of their destinies. The Supernatural anime episodes mirror the story arc of the series’ first two seasons, providing supplemental stories ranging from prequels and spin-offs to untold tales that fit within the Supernatural mythology.

Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles are Part the Package

Jared Padalecki reprises his role as Sam Winchester for all 22 episodes. Padalecki’s Supernatural co-star Jensen Ackles also provides the voice of Dean Winchester in select anime episodes.

Enhanced Content

Padalecki and Ackles are also ever-present in the Blu-ray and DVD enhanced content. The Supernatural co-stars provide a video introduction to each of the 22 anime episodes, and are also featured in a series of interviews that include conversations with live-action series creator Eric Kripke, and Supernatural: The Anime Series directors Shigeyuki Miya and Atsuko Ishizuka.

Special features on the Blu-ray and DVD also include a two-part featurette, “The Making of Supernatural: The Anime Series,” an intriguing behind-the-scenes revelation of how the live-action series was actually re-imagined into its new art form.
